Formostar Far Infrared Body Wrap System: A Great New Way to Shape Up! !

The Formostar Far Infrared Body Wrap System combines the features of a body wrap with a Far Infrared Sauna and is a great way to burn fat and lose centimetres, improve skin condition and get an energy boost all while you're lying down. Far infrared energy is produced by the Formostar at a frequency that is easily and effectively absorbed by the body and is experienced as a deep heat. This heat energy is transferred to the body via high-density medical grade silicone wraps.

The Formostar was designed in Germany in the mid 1980's to provide relief for severe rheumatoid arthritis suffers by helping manage joint and muscle pain. After a few years, the manufacturer discovered that people using Formostar were also achieving weight-loss and body reshaping benefits. A clinical study was undertaken in Germany to understand and prove these unexpected discoveries. Formostar's deep heat treatment stimulated the metabolism in the same way as an intensive workout helping to break down fat, improve blood circulation and release toxins. You will get hot and sweaty but it's worth it. In just one session you can burn 1200 calories.

Successful Weight Management: A Sureslim New Me!


Have you tried to lose weight unsuccessfully……? Chris Bonino has. For over ten years Chris tried nearly every weight loss company, diet craze, shake and pill available.

But nothing worked, or if it did, the weight crept back on not too long after she completed the diet.

After ten years she had given up, but when Chris saw her doctor he advised quite strongly to get the weight down to a healthy level or face serious health problems.

Desperately, she again tried to lose weight, but as before, the harder she tried the more weight she seemed to put on. The breakthrough came when Chris saw an ad for SureSlim. She decided at this point she had nothing to lose, except of course, the weight!

SureSlim's doctor analysed Chris's blood and helped devise a program that was tailored to her individual physiology. Chris discovered that while she had been dieting, she had been eating foods that weren't suited to losing weight. She also discovered her metabolism had slowed down from years of dieting.

SureSlim devised a healthy eating plan for Chris showing her how to eat healthy everyday foods that she could purchase herself from the supermarket. The new eating plan also worked to increase Chris's metabolism, enabling her to lose weight more quickly than ever before.

This is the essential point of difference with SureSlim's weight loss method and it ensures the weight stays off. Unlike other companies SureSlim teaches you to eat healthy everyday foods that will correct your metabolism. SureSlim also does not use diet shakes, pills or pre-packaged diet foods.

When your metabolism is functioning correctly, it is easier to stay slim. "And it doesn't even feel like your on a diet, because you're eating lots of healthy everyday foods that you like", says Chris.

In just 10 months, at 38 years of age and after a decade of trying, Chris lost 50 kgs! Her start weight was 118kgs and she is now a slim 68kgs! Just look at her amazing transformation. These photos were taken over a year ago when Chris had already been slim for over 3 years!

Since losing the weight Chris feels like a brand new person. "I simply could not believe that I could achieve a new me. I had tried for so long. Now that SureSlim has showed me how, I can not begin to tell you how good I feel about me and how so many things in my life have changed".

7 Key Reminders for Doing "The Business": by Gwendoline Ford!

It is always a perfect time for us to reflect upon where we have come as professionals and where we are going, especially for those that are small business owners or those in the customer service industry. Let's face it business is challenging, satisfying, stressful, fulfilling, heartbreaking, empowering .. and hopefully rewarding.

There are some basics that never change but that are easy to let slide as we work "in" the business. By this I mean processing the emails, talking to customers, some telemarketing perhaps, cleaning and so on, I am sure you know what I mean. And not enough time "on" the business, that is the business planning for the future in order to keeping custom coming through your doors, sometimes that means more education in order to meet the challenges of an ever changing market and of course the constant competitors.

Seven valuable tips that you have probably heard before but now is a good time to hear again.

1. Measure and monitor what works for you in regards to a particular advert, product or service, by recording this you are able to review and identify what to repeat in the future and of course what not to repeat.

2. Make a plan to boost your business and remember those who fail to plan - plan to fail!

3. To get new customers it might be time to update:

Your business card does it make a statement. Does it speak on both sides.

Take a look at your marketing material, is it designed to attract new business.

Is your place of work inviting for your customers, if you are not sure then ask them, it is too easy to grow complacent.

Does it still work for you and the staff. Is it practical and a pleasant working environment.

If you are a consultant take a look at your image, could you do with a bit of a makeover yourself.

Do some networking by joining a new business club or going to the many events on offer. A preference might be a business breakfast that provides networking, motivation, sustenance and you are in the office for a 9am start!

4. Keep your existing customers. Sometimes we can focus too much on new business and forget our existing customers, the ones that know us and sometimes need to be kept up to date.

Stay in touch with a hand written Birthday or Christmas cards. This is feel good thing to do and to receive. It also serves as a reminder so that when the customer is in need of services or products such as yours, then they will think of you.

Nobody can buy a secret and you are bound to have offerings that they do not know of, so let them know.

Reward them with a special offer for their loyalty.

Commit to communicating every three months, you don't have to try and get an order.

5. Review your monthly expenses.

Compare your suppliers you might even find a better range of products.

Renegotiate with existing suppliers, this even goes for insurance products.

Look at your bank services and charges a least annually.

Can your electricity or phone bill be reduced by being more efficient.

6. Watch your cash flow.

It is not profit that keeps your business going it's cash.

Take full advantage of credit terms from suppliers, sometimes this is to pay early to receive discounts and other times it is to pay on the last day as the money is better in your bank than theirs. Can you negotiate more favorable terms

Ensure that your invoices go out on time and that overdue payments are promptly chased.

7. Professional development.

Join a networking club, not only effective for showcasing your business but the contacts can be of incredible value.

Randomly go to business breakfasts, the motivate you for the day, you get to eat .. and you are back in the office for 9am!

Holosync: Meditation Made Easy!

The benefits of meditation on the mind and body have been known for thousands of years and have recently been validated in scientific studies. Unfortunately, many people find it difficult to meditate and give up without receiving these benefits. This problem has now been solved with the release of a powerful audio technology called Holosync that sends a very specific stimulus to the brain and creates states of deep meditation, quickly and easily.

Stimulating the brain with Holosync releases stress-reducing chemicals that are highly pleasurable. Most people go easily into a deep, trance-like meditative state normally only attained by experienced monks who have been meditating for over 20 years. In fact, EEG studies show the brain patterns experienced are actually deeper than those attained by monks.

As new neural pathways connect and synchronise the two sides of the brain, individuals develop what scientists call "whole brain functioning," which improves learning, intuition, mental clarity, creativity, concentration, and intelligence, as well as amazing quantum leaps in insight and self-awareness.

New research also reveals that even short-term exposure to Holosync creates significant increases in DHEA which is a precursor, or source ingredient, to virtually every hormone your body needs and is a buffer against stress-related hormones . It is a key determinant of physiological age. When DHEA levels are high, the body is at its peak - vibrant, healthy, and able to combat disease effectively.

Holosync also increases your ability to deal with stress and releases emotions such as anger, fear, sadness and anxiety. When Holosync is used regularly over time, many people discover that dysfunctional feelings and behaviours fall away - even those that have stubbornly resisted change in the past.

Dancing Waters: A Jordanian Tale by Maha Al Musa

Maha spent most of her life in Australia, far from her mother and her home. The messages she received as a child about her heritage, especially as a Muslim woman were a far cry from what she found when she returned to Jordan in her twenties. This chapter from her new book, Dance of the Womb, tells of her awakening to the power of the feminine in the presence of her Jordanian sisters. Enjoy this very nourishing read . . MORE...
